Halloween Treats on Bourbon Street

Today I thought I'd share a party invitation with a Halloween color palettes that goes beyond the traditional black and orange. Purple and red as shown in this fun invitation set is one of our top picks for Halloween colors right now. A color palette like this one still needs some dark accents in order to achieve the spooky feel, but think of using black as the accent color... the cherry on top.... the finishing touch.... you know what I mean.

Take my advise and don't be afraid to try out a bright or unusual color combination on your next Halloween project. You might just surprise yourself with the results.


Ann Elizabeth joins Salesforce.com in support of "Light the Night" Walk

Ann Elizabeth was proud to participate in last weekend's "Light the Night" Walk sponsored by The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Ann Elizabeth walked with the Utah Salesforce.com team in support of "Team Lynn" - a co-worker currently battling cancer.

3 reasons to consider a Thanksgiving card instead of a Christmas card

"What the heck is a Thanksgiving card?" you might ask. Well, let us explain.

Just like a Christmas or Holiday card, a Thanksgiving card is meant as a token of appreciation to clients, friends and family as the year draws to a close. Thanksgiving cards are mailing in advance of Thanksgiving and feature a seasonal, fall greeting. Whether it be business or personal, the intent of any type of seasonal greeting cards is a reminder to those you care about that they are important. Getting in the habit of including a seasonal card in your yearly routine is key to keeping in touch with your most important peeps.

So, why send a Thanksgiving card instead of a Holiday card? Here are our top 3 reasons:

3: BEAT THE RUSH! Oh sure, it's just early October now but it will be December before you know it. Thanksgiving cards are mailed prior to Thanksgiving, so when everyone else is scrambling you can sit back and relax knowing you've already got it covered!

 

2: STAND OUT FROM THE CROWD. What do you do with the seasonal cards you receive at home or at work? My guess is that you display them somewhere in view. A Thanksgiving card goes the extra mile because it will be a prominent part of that display all the way through the end of November and clear through December. Yeah, baby, that's working it!

 

1: SAVE YOUR CASH! Most companies offer incentives and early bird discounts in October on seasonal cards. Use the discounts to order a Thanksgiving card and put the rest of the cash toward a fun holiday party.

Happy Thanksgiving Card1

So whether you decide to send a Thanksgiving card, A Holiday Greeting or even a Happy New Year Card, make sure your card stands out from the estimated 7 billion greeting cards that will be sent this year.* Regardless of the type of card you choose your recipient will surely appreciate the thought that went into the gesture.
